Film Night at the JET is returning to Halton Hills.
This event, which is a part of the Ontario Culture Days Regional Hub Program, will feature film screenings at the John Elliott Theatre, located at 9 Church St. in Georgetown.
On Thursday, Oct. 13, there will be a free screening of Grandmother’s Voice: Healing the Scars of Colonialism.
This documentary looks at the truth and reconciliation work being done by an organization called Grandmother’s Voice, which is a group of Indigenous people that create a safe and secure community while providing education and understanding of Indigenous cultures and practices.
According to Culture Days’ website, the video “examines the role that non-Indigenous people play in addressing 250 years of colonialism and genocide, while also presenting a case for why this work is so important.”
It also won “Best Historical Film” at the Culture and Diversity Film Festival in Los Angeles.
The screening will take place from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
